Welcome back to Wednesday's League of Legends preview for DraftKings where league action continues in Korea and China.


Today’s feature contest is the LOL $300K Insomnia Special ($100,000 to 1st) on DraftKings and a $25,000 Critical Strike for $4 entry with $2,500 to 1st place.


Today is a 5 game slate that combines the LCK (South Korea League) and the LPL (China League) with 3 matches in the LPL and 2 in the LCK. These matches are the best of 3 games.

Here is today’s bookies odds with action getting underway at 1600 AEST and the current odds from Beteasy as of 1000 AEDT

The two Korean games are very lopsided with Damwon Gaming (8-7) taking on dead last Griffin (3-12) and league leading Gen.G (12-3) taking on APK Prince (5-10). In China, TOP Esports are the big favourite today over Team We (5-5) who have lost 2 on the trot. OMG (6-5) and Suning (5-7) should be a close contest along with Rogue Warriors (4-7) who take on Vici (5-7) who were also a last start loser to OMG. 


If you are looking for Starting Lineups for the LPL you can follow @kenzi131 on Twitter who will post LPL lineups in advance and if available the 1st matchup for LCK.




With thanks to rotogrinders.com here is today’s overall slate breakdown with the teams overall performance for the Spring season. Gen.G are the biggest favourites on the slate and dominated APK earlier this season (29 Kills to 8). Whilst they do sit on top of the standings their kill totals are mid range. Gen.G can be described as a clean team, knock over the Towers and Dragons then take care of the opposition. Damwon gets the cushy matchup against Griffin who are dead last in K:D ratio and Kills per game. Vici should get a Kill bump with Rogue Warriors giving up a slate leading 17 deaths per game. Their price tags are accessible on DraftKings and will be a popular stack today. Suning are in an interesting underdog spot with a Kills per game average of 14.2 and their opponent OMG having a high 15 deaths per game.

Thanks to rotogrinders.com today’s MID selection will be the key to success. The matchup between TOP and Team WE shapes up to the bloodiest on the slate and for Knight ($8,000) and Teacherma ($6,600) should go big, especially if Team WE can pinch a map in the contest. Both Knight and Teacherma have a KDA of over 5. Gen.G’s MID Bdd ($7,400) leads all competitors in with a KDA of 7.56 but as mentioned his team are efficient and do not post high Kill rates.

Today's Targets

Feature Stack - TOP Esports


ADC Photic $8,000

MID Knight $8,000

SUP QiuQiu $5,800

TEAM TOP $5,600


Just a quick note - TOP signed ADC JackyLove last week and “could” make an appearance in Map 2 (LPL team changes are rare so I need to make a disclaimer). TOP are the hot team on the slate with over 15 kills per game and the books have this team with 30+ kills in two maps. If you are worried about Photic/JackyLove then look to add either 369 or Karsa in your stack


Second Stack - Suning


ADC huanfeng $7,000

MID Angel $6,800

JNG SofM $6,000

SUP SwordArt $4,400


Quite keen on the underdog in Suning who has a big chance to knock over OMG. Suning owns the third-highest kills per game (14.2) on the slate which makes them a very live underdog to stack, especially when you factor in OMG owning the second most deaths per game (15).
